Are there any gas stations in the tri state area that sells visa gift cards (not just for gas) which can be purchased with the freedom?

Specifically visa? In order for it to be worth it, they would have to sell the visa gc's that allow you to load up to $500.

(The increment before that one is $100 gc with a 4/5.95 fee)

No doesnt have to be visa. Agreed a 100 dollar wouldn't be worth it. I would gladly take a 1000 dollar one!

Is there a definitive answer as to whether buying a gas gift card or a gift card at a gas station convenience store will count towards the 5% categories with the Freedom card?

Thanks
